Gray Or Grey...this weeks Challenge...a bit of inspiration on the rebirth of Winter

“Eyes too expressive to be blue, 
Too lovely to be grey.” 
 ~Matthew Arnold

This weeks Challenge is simply the word GREY.
No rules other than NO Black & White that would be cheating.
As winter shows its ugly head again in the north plains it seems all is grey, so there should be lots to photograph!! And Grey is certainly a mood too so you could go that way. Here are few more grey quotes and photos for inspiration.

“Break, break, break, On thy cold gray stones, O sea!
And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me”
 Alfred, Lord Tennyson

“The old gray mare just ain't what she used to be”

“His wings are gray and trailing, Azrael, Angel of Death, And yet the souls that Azrael brings Across the dark and cold, Look up beneath those folded wings, And find them lined with gold”
 Robert Gilbert Welsh

“Gray skies are just clouds passing over.”
 Frank Gifford

“The photographer's palette [is] a thousand shades of gray.”
 H. E. Clark

“The gray, immense and unmistakably Central European sky..
air slightly perfumed with petrol and boiled potatoes.”
 James Morris

“The great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River, all set about with fever trees.”
 Rudyard Kipling

Have fun and post on Flickr and you can post in the Facebook group too but please post all challenge pictures in Flickr first :)
